The revolution of Islamic music

Just like other artists, 2016 was busy and colourful for Islamic artists who are fast making a name on both the local and international scene, particularly on the nasheed music front.
A nasheed is a work of vocal music that is either sung as acappella accompanied by percussion instruments such as the daf.
The daf is a large Persian frame drum used in popular and classical music.
The approach of nasheed music is largely associated with Islamic artists—hence, calling their music nasheed.
